    Well, given that 3.4cm is about 1.3 inches, that would be very narrow.

    Measure from the center of the B string to the center of the E string @ the bridge. I'm thinking 18mm spacing

    According to what little I've been able to find about Mr. Mottola, he was an "experimental luthier" who apparently worked for or was associated with The American Association Of Luthiers. This bass has a wide range of sound possibilities.

    Cherry wood is one of my favorite tone woods. Have 3 basses made of it. Someone is going to get a pretty cool bass with this one.

    I'd be especially interested in a Lakland Skyline 5 string Jazz type bass.

  19. Describing as best you can, what popular body wood does the cherry compare to? Ash, alder, mahogany? I gotta big-ass hunk of cherry, that's EXTREMELY figured, too.

    Oh, what's the string-spacing, btw?

    Offhand I'd say mahogany might be close. look at the photos and you'll see the measurements
